TIPPY AND MIGUEL'S RELATIONSHIP

In a vlog posted on YouTube last February 22, 2020, Tippy said that she and Miguel have officially been together for two years and ten months at that time.

Miguel also courted her for seven months before they made their relationship official.

In the same vlog, Tippy and Miguel revealed how their relationship started. The two actually met around 2008 or 2009, through Tippy's cousin.

Tippy recalled, "I met Miguel through my cousin, Ate Yen, na classmate niya sa college na nursing. 'Tapos wala, hi-hello... I was, what, 15? If I was 14, that was 12 years ago pala.

"'Tapos nung 2015, nagkita ulit kami 'tapos walang anything. Basta, wala lang."

In January 2016, Miguel invited Tippy to watch his favorite bands at the GoodVybes Fest held at Aseana City Open Grounds, Parañaque City, on February 20, 2016.

She continued, "May concert yung Oh Wonder, si Kuya mo randomly nagpadala ng cookie shots 'tapos may pa-mixed CD tapos may letter na he wanted to take me to the concert."

Miguel added, "Kasi Oh Wonder and Churches yun, e. Oh Wonder was opening for Churches and I love them both talaga."

He also sent Tippy some flowers on Valentine's Day in 2016.

Tippy recounted, "Ayun, 'tapos nung February nung time na yun, may paano rin flowers, kasi Valetine's. Ako naman, thank you lang ako sa Snapchat, ganun."

Tippy eventually declined the invite and explained, "Kapag kasi hindi kita kilala, 'O, bakit ka nagpaparamdam, hindi naman kita kilala?' So, mahiyain ako in that sense.

"I tried to listen to that CD, but I was never able to listen to it. May mali sa pagka-burn. Burning pa nun, burning pa yung ginagamit nung time na yun. Wala pang USB-USB."

Miguel still went to watch the concert alone.

He revealed, "I bought tickets for two. Pinuntahan ko pa rin. Ang galing, e, sobrang galing nila live."

At that time, Tippy was actually dating someone else. She noted, "I was actually dating somebody else na M.U., malabong usapan. Malabo nung time na yun."

After a few months, Miguel said Tippy started appearing in his dreams.

He narrated, "Come October, basta nagkaroon ako ng dream kasama si Tippy, basta mga mountains pa nga yun 'tapos nagkukuwentuhan kami, parang picnic.

"Kasi that was first week of October, come third week, may isa pang dream pero blurry na. So sabi ko, 'Baka may sinasabi sa akin or whatever yung mga cosmic or si God.'

"So, tinext ko si Yen and si Chot, sabi ko,'Should I act on this?' Si Chot, sabi niya, 'Maybe the universe is telling you something so just patiently wait for it or whatever.'"

Fate actually brought the two together.

At that time, Tippy and her family were set to visit her grandmother in the U.S.

Miguel later found out that Tippy and her family are boarding the same flight he's currently in as a flight attendant.

Miguel said, "Si Yen, ang reply lang niya, 'Haha, magkasama kami now. May party kami, we're leaving for the States tomorrow.'"

Tippy added, "Nung time kasi na ito, nung night before I left for the States... This is for me to see my grandmother wo is very sick at that time."

Miguel continued, "Grabe naman yung chances nun, as in parang never random na nangyari. Kasi nakuha ko yung schedule ko a month before, 'tapos sila biglaan sila mag-i-States. They always take Aseana or other Asian airlines."

Miguel went the extra mile and took Tippy and her mom around the following day.

Tippy recalled, "After we met dun sa airplane, may dalang cookies, nag-aano siya na he will take us out the next day.

"And then, as for me, nahihiya ako kasi hindi ko naman talaga siya masyadong kilala.

"Pero my mom was, like, 'Maybe it might be nice for somebody who doesn't really know what we're going through right now.' Because my grandmother was really sick, na to take us around.

"And that's what happened. Nag-Panda Express, he helped us Christmas shop. And that's it. And the rest is history.

"It was a slow start for us. I really didn't feel anything. So ayun, and here we are."

Tippy hasn't been active in showbiz for some time to focus on taking up law at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. But the Star Magic talent keeps her fans updated through her YouTube channel.
